Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. All claims and disputes in connection with the Terms or the use of any product or service provided by the Company that cannot be resolved informally or in small claims court shall be resolved by binding arbitration on an individual basis under the terms of this Arbitration Agreement. Unless otherwise agreed to, all arbitration proceedings shall be held in English. This Arbitration Agreement applies to you and the Company, and to any subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of services or goods provided under the Terms.
Please read the Dispute Resolution section very carefully. It affects your rights and is a component of your contract with the company. Procedures for mandatory binding arbitration and a class action waiver are included in this section.
Before requesting arbitration, a party must first give the other party a written Notice of Dispute describing the nature and grounds of the claim as well as the requested relief. This notice shall be delivered to the Company at its address on file. Within 30 days after receiving the notification, both parties are advised to attempt an informal resolution of the disagreement. In the event that the disagreement cannot be settled, either party may request arbitration. The arbitrator shouldn’t be made aware of any agreements reached prior to the arbitration process.
The American Arbitration Association (AAA) or a different provider of alternative dispute resolution chosen by both parties will serve as the venue for the arbitration. Except when they conflict with the rules of the arbitration, the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules shall govern the arbitration. The arbitration will be conducted before one arbitrator who will act impartially. For claims under $10,000, binding non-appearance-based arbitration is available; but, for claims over $10,000, a hearing may be necessary.If a hearing is required, it will happen within 100 miles of the claimant’s home or at a site that all parties agree upon. The arbitrator’s decision may be used as the basis for a judgment in a court with appropriate jurisdiction. The company will pay the award or $2,500, whichever amount is higher, if it exceeds the most recent settlement offer made by the arbitrator. Each party shall bear its own expenses and expenditures and shall contribute equally to the fees and expenses of the ADR provider.
Guidelines for Non-Appearance Based Arbitration. If non-appearance arbitration is chosen, the initiating party will choose how the arbitration will be conducted, whether it be by phone, internet, or written submissions. It is not essential for the parties or witnesses to personally appear unless both parties agree to it.
Arbitration Period Arbitration must be requested or initiated within the legal time restrictions and deadlines outlined in the AAA rules for the specific issue.
Authority of the arbitrator. If arbitration is required, the arbitrator will be in charge of deciding each party’s rights and obligations. No additional cases or parties will be included in the dispute. According to the Terms, the AAA Rules, and any applicable law, the arbitrator may grant dispositive motions, grant monetary damages, and grant non-monetary remedies. The written award and statement of decision from the arbitrator will include all significant discoveries and judgments. In a court of law, they have the same authority as the judge. Both parties are required to abide by the arbitrator’s ruling.
Jury Trial Waiver By signing this agreement, the parties agree to arbitrate all claims and disputes hereunder instead of going to court to enforce their legal or constitutional rights to a jury trial. The arbitration process is often more constrained, effective, and affordable than court procedures and is only loosely amenable to judicial review. The parties forgo the right to a jury trial and agree to have the dispute decided by a judge in the event that any litigation between the parties is brought in a state or federal court to set aside or enforce an arbitration judgment.
Class or consolidated actions are not allowed. Claims from numerous customers or users cannot be arbitrated or litigated jointly or merged with those of any other customer or user. All claims and disputes must be settled on an individual basis, not as a class.
Confidentiality. The arbitration proceedings shall be conducted in strict confidence. The parties agree to keep this information private unless the law specifies otherwise. This does not preclude a party from providing the evidence required by a court of law to enforce this agreement, a judgment of arbitration, or to obtain injunctive or equitable relief.
Severability. If any part of this agreement is found to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, that specific part will be null and void and the remainder of the agreement will remain in full effect.
Right to Waive. Either party may waive any of the rights and limitations outlined in this agreement, but such a waiver will not affect any other portion of the agreement.
Maintaining the Agreement. Even if your relationship with the company is over, this arbitration agreement will remain in effect.
Court for small claims.
Despite the aforementioned, either you or the Company may file a claim in small claims court on an individual basis.
Equitable Emergency Relief
Despite the aforementioned, either party may ask a state or federal court for immediate equitable relief in order to keep things as they are while arbitration is proceeding. Any additional rights or responsibilities under this Arbitration Agreement shall not be construed to have been waived by a request for temporary relief.
Claims Exempt from Arbitration. Despite the aforementioned, claims of defamation, violations of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, and infringement or misappropriation of the patent, copyright, trademark, or trade secrets of the other party shall not be covered by this arbitration agreement.
The parties hereby consent to the personal jurisdiction of the courts in Netherlands County, California for any situation where the aforementioned arbitration agreement allows for judicial litigation.
